Abstract

The present invention (Figure 1) can be viewed as a method for efficently transferring files using file differentiation. The method operates by providing an original file (Figure 2, 15); creating a revision file of the original file (15); and generating a delta file (200) that identifies only the changes between the original file (15) and the revision file (19).
